Algeria: Christians face jail for opening church without permit
Catholic World News - December 13, 2010
Four Algerian Christians face jail terms after being convicted of establishing a church without a permit.
Under a 2006 law, establishing any house of worship in Algeria requires a permit from the government. Four Protestants were sentenced to 2- and 3-month prison terms for holding services in a church without a permit.
